Overview

Political System of the European Union / Edition 3

Hix (European and comparative politics, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK) presents an introduction to the political system of the European Union. Assessing a variety of explanatory theoretical models, he describes the organization and operation of executive, legislative, and judicial governance. He then offers separate chapters analyzing the influence of public opinion, parties and elections, and interest representation on EU politics. Finally, he looks at the formation of policy in the areas of market regulation, expenditures, economic and monetary union, citizen freedom and security policies, and foreign policy.

This book contains a treasury of theoretical approaches to EU. It summarises and explores further the possibilities to study European Union as a political system. It is very innovative and challenges the most popular approaches, developed in international relation theory by offering completely different perspective.
